“You can learn all about which airplanes have the safest record, reserve your flight, drive to the airport, [and check in]. But it does you no good unless you get on the plane. Similarly, it’s not enough to know all about Christianity. You have to take a step of faith and ‘get on board’ by trusting in Christ.”
